»A Passion for Quality«
This motto is the key to the success of the Käfer fine foods company.
Out of a family business in Munich has grown an international enterprise with almost 1.500 employees in 2017. In the event catering sector, Käfer is the European market leader.
Elsa and Paul Käfer laid the foundations for this success on May 16, 1930, when they opened a »colonial stores with wines, liqueurs and bottled beers« in the Amalienstraße in Munich's Schwabing quarter. Just three years later, the shop moved into larger premises on the junction of Prinzregentenstraße and Schumannstraße, where the parent branch is located to this day.
In the 60s, the sons Gerd and Helmut took over the well-established delicatessen with its midday offers and developed it into a gourmet meeting point with the emphasis on quality and service.
Michael Käfer, the son of Gerd Käferjoined the management in 1988 and became CEO in 1992. When his father left the executive in 1995, he took over his shares and became sole shareholder and managing director.
Today the Käfer company economically is based on four divisions: Catering, gastronomy, retail and licensing.
